"In each the salesman would hold up gar ment after garment and say this Is a "so-and-so make," but not one seemed to know any other rea son why I should buy It, neither did I. so I didn't. I was after a suit and didn't care who made It so long as It waa right I cam In here and the only -.hing talked about was the clothes themselves. That's the right system. No one buys my cattle because I raise them but they sell well In South Omaha because they are good cattle. Don't see here my name would add a cent to their value and I don't see why some maker's name adds any value to a suit only seem to add to the price." It Is need less perhaps to add this man bought a suit here. THE HOME OF QUALITY CLOTHES A PLEASURE TO SHOP HERE Panamas $4 to $7.50 mm? hri H vi WW From a Staff Correspondent. LINCOLN.

Dr. (lark Threatens Mate Board. If. A. W.

Dr. Clark gave the board until June 1 to get rlKht. He stated in Ills letter that the child was first of fered to the home a year ago, and because of the fact that an operation was neces sary before It would be a normal child. Mis. Johnston, the superintendent, refused to accept It, as she did not want It to as-em-late with the other children. Applica tion was then made to the orthopedlo hos pital and Dr. Lord turned it down, be cause he said It would be at least two years or eighteen months before the opera tion could be performed. The board acted cn the recommendation of the two super intendents and refused to accept the child.

The tSate Board of Public Lands and Butldinga raised the axe this morning and beheaded a voucher filed with the board by Governor Shallenberger, turned It down cold and refused to endorse It and rejected It. The voucher was for 15 for piano rent and it waa money due the Ross P. Curtlse company, from, whom the governor had rented the Instrument. On one or two pre vious occasions the amount had been al lowed. The piano was originally rented by Governor Bheldoa and was at the mansion when the present executive moved In. The board decided that If Governor Shal lenberger desired music he could buy an Instrument out of the appropriation for the maintenance of the executive mansion, but It was poor business for the state to be paying for a piano, which In the course of time would more than pay for the in strument The board thought the rent ex orbitant anyhow. Besides, It was pub lished- this morning that the governor's office held there was no half way road when it cornea to passing on claims either ALTERATION SALE New Front. New Ffitares, New Store.

One drunk was removed from the ball park. Just where these people are getting their boose, of course. Is a question which the police are working overtime to discover.
